Gammadim

 

This word occurs only in (Ezekiel 27:11) A variety of explanations of the term have been offered.

  • One class renders it "pygmies."

  • A second treats it as a geographical or local term.

  • A third gives a more general sense to the word "brave warriors." Hitzig suggests "deserters." After all, the rendering in the LXX: "guards"-- furnishes the simplest explanation.
